New approach to improve prediction of incoming high frequency signal angles

Editor’s Highlight—   This collaborative investigation presents findings that will improve high frequency (HF) geolocation with potential for major practical impact. The paper demonstrates full HF ionospheric electron density data assimilation using an ensemble of physics-based ionospheric model realizations.... more

New insights into the promising millimeter wave band

Editor’s Highlight—   Using data from multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) measurements performed in a laboratory, this paper presents an analysis of several fast-fading distributions (Rayleigh, Rice, Nakagami-m, Weibull and a-µ) at the 94 GHz band. Experimental data at this frequency is not easy to.... more

e-POP RRI provides new opportunities for space-based, High-Frequency radio science experiments

Angeline G. Burrell, University of Leicester and University of Texas at Dallas

Commentary in Radio Science  Perry et al. [2016] present the first results of the Radio Receiver Instrument (RRI), a part of the enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (e-POP) that flies onboard the CAScade, Smallsat and IOnospheric Polar Explorer (CASSIOPE) satellite. Using a matched filter technique, e-POP.... more

Measuring the Effect of Rounding the Corners of Scattering Structures

Editors’ Highlight— The problem considered in this paper is interesting from the mathematical point of view; it is also valuable for numerical simulation of rather complicated obstacles and even various practical devices. The authors did not restrict themselves to a theoretical consideration of the.... more

Water vapor estimation using digital terrestrial broadcasting waves

Editors’ Highlight—This paper describes a new method to observe moisture along the path of existing digital terrestrial broadcasting waves and presents proof-of-concept experiments in an idealized situation and a real-world case. Low-level moisture is essential for severe local storms, and the proposed.... more

Observability of Ionospheric Space-Time Structure with ISR: A Simulation Study

Editors’ Highlight—New electronically steerable array (ESA) incoherent scatter radars (ISR) have the potential to make some important discoveries but many of their capabilities can only be fully exploited and the results believed if we have a formal process for determining the errors. The authors of.... more
